Abu Hurairah (RA) reports that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "The best day on which the sun rises is Friday. [On Friday] Adam (AS) was created and on that day he entered paradise and on that day he was expelled from paradise. And the Hour will come to pass on Friday." [Muslim]
Friday is the BEST of days. Our Prophet (SAW) referred to it as a day of Eid. It is a day of blessing and of festivity. For all of these reasons and more, we have saved the BEST of Islamic Awareness Week for last!
TOMORROW Friday, April 4th, in sha Allah from 1:15pm - 3pm, join in for OUTDOOR Open Jummah Prayer on ERICKSON FIELD, right across from the library! In the situation that it rains, our back up location will be the Interfaith Center/IFC.
In sha Allah, the Khateeb will be Brother Jose Acevedo. He is currently serving as the Arabic/Islamic Studies and Quran Chair at the Al Rahmah School, along with teaching the Quran Academy students various subjects, and also along with being the Youth Director at ISB (formerly at Darul Hijrah). Brother Jose is well known in the DMV area and is a very powerful speaker, so this will be one Jummah experience you won't want to miss!

In sha Allah, the big event will be taking place from 7pm - 11pm at the Loft Ballroom in Laurel, MD, and baby sitting will be available for kids 12 years and under.
